In between some April Thunderstorms, I dashed our an shot a few of my wife's spring blooms. I believe this one will open into the flower posted yesterday.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

it never ceases to amaze, how something like this can turn into such an incredible flower. by the way, did a slight double-take when this page loaded -- wasn't the subject matter i'm used to seeing on your blog, but nice to see :)

@danthro: Part of my "style" is my lack of style. I shoot anything and everything.

I like this flower shot at the intermediate stage of its growth. A very good close up. Did the rain help you focus a bit faster? ;-)
